Hi fellow Wingers from down under

I looked into other threads to try and make up my mind on highway pegs to no avail any advice or direction would be appreciated.

I'm looking at the Kuryakyn 4073 or 4056's, need to factor in that i'm 6'4 also that our roads have a thousand and one round a bouts so cornering a factor to i guess.

Like some of my Aussie GW buddies we are ordering gear from mostly wingstuff USA so our purchase's need to be careful & considered.

Any suggestion please and if you could add in a part number would be appreciated too

Just returned from wing ding and while at wing ding my rigt Kury highway peg broke when bike tipped over.

Visited Rivco booth at wing ding and they had other Kury highway pegs on display that had broken. Well I bought Rivco pegs and just got them on today. Price at Wing Ding was about the same as Kury pegs but they appear to be heavier and are solid instead of cast.

Do not know if this helps but I would think twice about the Kury pegs. If the Rivco work out I will be less likely to buy Kury in the future.

Thanks for the info, bad luck with the wing tipping over! maybe that would break any brand of peg.
Not sure if wingstuff stock Rivco i will have to check it out, trouble is i would prefer to buy my GW gear from the one place over there if i could rather than all over the place if you know what i mean.

cloud09: I have the Kury Highway Floor boards # KU4059 and my local riding partner " Rapier " has the # KU4056. Rapier is probably 6'1" or 6'2". He just changed to the optional 4in. extensions and is happier. If your at 6'4" I'm not sure that the 4in. extensions would be enough. The 4073's look like the best possibility to me. Having no extension, your forward and backward adjustment is limited only by the length of the engine guard it is attached to. Feel confident, however, that whichever you get it will fall just short of perfect.

Thanks Chopin

I liked the 4056s for the reason that they did not seem to stick out to far and the forward & backward settings, i thought the 4073s looked as though they stuck out a bit from the bike which im learning that this would be more comfortable for the taller rider!
The picture you have there of the 4056s (Rapier's) thats the pic of the standard one right? or is that the 4inch extension?

That is the standard 6 in. pictured. This has been said before by many others but I'll say it again, " Hey Kuryakyn and Distributors ! Why not make the 4 in. extension an option when you buy. What kind of bologna is this ! " Rapier should be back here this weekend. Lets get him to take a picture of his set up and it might give you some perspective. What is your inseam ( in inches, please ) measurement. Use a ruler and measure from the bottom of your shoes . Pants sizes can't be trusted. By the way, are clothes sizes over there in metric also ?

Hi Paul
Like i said on the phone i got the GL1800 Kuryakyn Switchblade Highwaypeg w/Flip-Out Heel http://http://wingstuff.com/pgroup_detail/232_Footpeg_Floorboards/2289_GL1800_Kuryakyn_Switchblade_Highwaypeg_w_Flip_Out/?goto=%2Fpgroup_list%2Fgl1800%2F232_goldwing_Footpeg_Floorboards%2Fdes%2F
These are comfortable and it took a few adjustments to get them right . The only thing i have a problem is having the blade out for your heel on a straight road is very comfy you just have to remember that when you come to the twisty bits and you lean to far the bottom part of the blade scraps on the ground. The only other thing that you need to order with these is Kuryakyn Mini Arms For GL1800 Ergo II Highway Footpegs http://http://wingstuff.com/pgroup_detail/232_Footpeg_Floorboards/21101_Kuryakyn_Mini_Arms_For_GL1800_Ergo_II_Highway/?goto=%2Fpgroup_list%2Fgl1800%2F232_goldwing_Footpeg_Floorboards%2Fdes%2F%3Fpage%3D2 Like the other guys have said the 6" that come with it are to long i went for the very short ones.

Chopin - 33 inch inseam

Not to over think this cloud, but if we are going to get it right the first time, I need to feel comfortable that we are on the same ruler. If I take a retractable ruler and measure from the floor ( boots on ) to the " V " of my crotch, I get 32 in. Using the same method your ruler says 33 in. ?

I'm waiting for the moment to buy the 4 1/2in. extensions.It's the best we are going to do with the Kury brand. The ones suggested by RKPOOO also look like they would fit the bill for max adjust-ability: http://www.cyclemaxohio.com/inc/sdetail/4101 . Didn't find them on the WingStuff site though.Their counter- part would be the KU7976 on WingStuff and $ 20.00 more. Flip a coin Cloud.

I'm not sure about those pegs that dont have that extra support of the rubber end bit that looks as though it sits against the head covers this looks as though it would give a little more support.
I think the first thoughts may be best (4073) but would welcome some actual pics from taller riders if possible.

Thanks for the imput guys

I probably won't see Rapier until next weekend to get a shot of him on the bike with his 4 1/2 in. extension on the 4056. Hopefully by then you will already have have something you are happy with. Regardless, we will post some pictures with our inseam sizes as it my help with others now and in the future.

Cloud,
I bit the bullet and ordered these today.
http://www.cyclemaxohio.com/inc/sdetail/4101
I don't think the rubber pad that rests against the heads on the other Kury pegs is vital. If the clamps on these fit around the crash bars tight, I don't think they'll rotate? I won't be standing on them, just resting my legs. If they work for me, I'll have some 6" & 4.5" arms and pegs for sale cheap.

Yeah Rob Im not sure if they would rotate either though a couple of reviews on some have rotated on guys, i know that this could happen for various reasons and like you said you are only resting your hoofs on them so once tight they should be good.

thanks guys for the ideas will bite the bullet when Wingstuff get back in touch with me.
